rOIttPtlESIDENT IN 1861,
( Putiject to llio Decision of the Democratic National
Tlio Consoription Act.
Wo publish to-day the decision of tho
Buprcmo Court of Pennsylvania, delivered
bj Chief Juttico Walter II. Lowrie,
assorting tho unconstitutionality of tho
Consoription Act. Tho subject boing ono
of intense intorcst, will oommond itself to
tho attention of tho publio, and it will bo
n gratoful relief from tho doubts and per
plexities that have boon ongondored by tho
enforcement of tho act, to have the enigma
solved, and tho wholo matter sifted and
thoroughly analyzed by a oompetent judi
ml tribunal. Ot courso, tho vials of
Radical wrath will ba opened upon Judges
Lowrie, WooDWAnn and Thompson for
expounding tho law according to their con
scientious interpretation, and not in accor
dance with tho wishos of a faction.
Tho Philadelphia Press, as usual, is
foremost in tho application of abuse. It
suggests that tho decision is tho result of
the spleen and vindictivencks of the Judges
in their disappointment at political defeat
How this gravoohatgo can apply to Judge
Thompson, who was not a candidate,, the
ingenuity of tho Press, perhaps, can ex-
The Justices of tho Supremo Court of
Pennsylvania havo enjoyed a reputation as
learned and upright officials. They havo
disoharged tho responsible duties of their
position to tho satisfaction of their fellow
citizens, and till now roproaoh has not
visited them, nor accusation of official dis
nonescy sumea tnoir namo3. Jiut ono
decision that runs counter to tho Radical
desire is sufficient, it seems, to blast the
well wen honors of a long career of use
fulness and integrity. They arc dishonest
Judges, forsooth, because they oannot bo
bought nor intimidated into complianco
vith tho Radical will. They have ad
judged falsely, becauso they have not
prostituted their high calling to the uses of
tyranny and fanaticism. Such is the
reasoning of tho Administration organs,
who make it a point to villify every Judgo
that does not adopt their theories upon all
questions, and to laud extravagantly and
quoto as patterns of judicial worth all
those that reflect from tho Bench tho ideas
of their faction;
However much tho opinions of Adminis
tration organs may bo at variance with
thoso of our constituted tribunals, wo trust
that all parties will accept tho law as in
terpreted by its ligitimato expounders.
There may bo no penalty for insult, but
thero is for violation of the law, and that
penalty will attach to the highest in au
thority as well as to the humblest citizen.
Tho Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has
declared that certain citizens of this State
have been deprived of liberty, placed un
der military restraint, and subjected to
great privation, suffering and danger, by
a process which the Constitution forbids.
If tho Administration havo erred through
ignorance, now let them rectify tho error.
They havo no claim upon tho Pennsylva
nia conscripts in the field ; it is not wo that
say so, but tho Supremo Court of Penn
sylvania. If the predicament is perplex
ing, it gives our rulers occasion to reflect
upon tho advisability of adhering closely
to those principles which have heretofore
govornod in the Republic, and of enforcing
no harsh measurss of doubtful legality
without due investigation by oompctont
0. Farrand.an artist of Now York, who
has travelled extensively in South America,
will be at Bloomsburg for so mo days. He
will exhibit views in tho Court House, on

Spanish Amerioan cities, whieh will in

attend. Mr. F. has also othor American
views and many fino European ones, and

My Dear Sir:
On Saturday tho 7th inst., tho different
Corps composing tho Army of tho Poto
mac took up their lino of maroh for tho
Rappahannock. Tho wind blno tho dust
in such olouds that it was almost impossi
ble to sco. Tho 5th and Oth Corps form
ed tho right of our line undor command of
Gen. Sodgwick, and tho 1st 2nd and 3d
formed tho loft under command o( Gen.
French. Near sunset tho difforont Corps
reached tho river. The Oth halted at Rap
pahannock Station, and ovcry ono sup
posed it would attack tho enemy next
morning in their entrenchments. Tho en
emy had tho same opinion, thcrcforo id
not poit their pickets moro than CO yards
in front of tho earthworks. But Scdg-1
wioh wanted tho works that night, and
accordingly sent over a detachment to tako
them. Not a gun was fired by tho ad
vancing party ; but rushing forward thoy
secured tho pontoon bridgo, n number alio
fording tho stream. It then becamo a
hand to hand conflict, resulting in tho
oapturo of tho forts with Cvo guns, 1300
prisoners, and several colors.
It is a remarkable fact that all tho in
juries on both sides wero caused by bay
